PROPERTY : Ernst & Young Invests in the Future with New Building
Recent Gauteng Business News
The move is testimony to the growth we are experiencing as a firm, and to our belief in the growth potential we are already seeing in South Africa and across the continent of Africa as a whole, said Ajen Sita, CEO for Ernst and Young, Africa at the groundbreaking ceremony. Ernst and Youngs recent 2012 Attractiveness survey for Africa identified positive indicators for growth, and this project shows how real we believe Africas growth potential to be. We see it as an investment in Africas future.
Ernst and Young, which provides assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services to companies and governments, says that the move will place the company at the centre of South Africas economic hub, the Sandton central business district. In addition, says Sita, proximity to the Gautrain station provides easy access to OR Tambo International, an increasingly important consideration as the firms African business grows.
While we are increasingly using technology to replace excessive travel in line with our sustainability commitments, an international business on a growth trajectory needs good access to an international airport, Sita says.
Another important consideration is the need to provide the growing staff complement with better facilities and easier commuting access via the Gautrain and other transport routes that converge on Sandton. Our people are our competitive differentiator and the foundation of our success, Sita concludes. A primary motivation is to provide them with world-class facilities and easy access to transport routes and other facilities.
